Nikki Lund Remembers Fun Childhood Times with Kim Kardashian

Fashion designer Nikki Lund was BFFs with Kim Kardashian in grade school in Beverly Hills.

The designer, who has partnered with Richie Sambora for Nikki Rich Designs, told “Extra” she and Kim had so many great memories. “We had too many best memories together growing up over the years. I always loved going to Kim's dad's house, Robert. He called me ‘Dickie.’ He was hilarious and a really great guy. Always made us laugh. I loved going on ski trips together. All of us went to Utah together one year and Aspen another year. Many of my relatives live in Utah so we hung out with all of them and had a blast. Camping, skiing, shopping etc...”

Lund did recall a particularly funny memory. “I went to school with her and Kourtney for a day at Marymount High School, a private Catholic all-girls school in L.A. I did not go to Marymount -- I went to Beverly Hills High School -- but at the time I was able to go with them and a few of our other friends to check out the campus and activities for the day. We dressed up like the Spice Girls. It was a ‘free dress’ day for them. They normally had to wear uniforms, so we were neat and tidy Spice Girls. No midriffs, no tank tops, no shorty-short skirts, but somehow Kim and I pulled of being Baby Spice and Posh Spice. We loved Spice Girls. We also had code talk to… when we had to swear what we were saying was truth, we’d say ‘bible!’”
It’s been awhile since Nikki and Kim hung out. “It's been years since I have seen Kim. Not for any reason other than we both got busy and had new friends, really. Kim’s mom Kris Jenner came to a Nikki Rich party I threw last year, but Kim’s schedule, like mine, is so crazy. It’s so hard to keep up with it all. I’m sure we’ll see each other soon, though. I have a feeling.

Lund added, “Looking back I’m grateful to have grown up in L.A. I feel unaffected by any so-called ‘fame’ or celebrity of my own or anyone else's. I am proud of Kim’s successes as I know she is proud of mine.”
